Owasippe Court Appeal Still Stands

from a news release of The Muskegon Chronicale, "Blue Lake: Owasippe move a good first step," by Lynn Moore, Nov 13, 2008

Despite the recent good news about the withdrawal of the purchase agreement for Camp Owasippe (see Owasippe Saved But Not Preserved), mixed signals from the Chicago Area Scout Council (CAC) continue. It has been revealed that the Boy Scout Council has not actually dropped the appeal of the court decision that upheld the right of Blue Lake Township to refuse to rezone the property.

It appears that the suit which was dropped was only an ancillary case about costs, not appeal of Judge William C. Marietti’s ruling against them. Chuck Dobbins, executive with the CAC says that the council wants to do things the right way. But newly re-elected township supervisor, Donald Studaven, points out that they are continuing the challenge of the judge’s decision.

Without a doubt the CAC intends to slim down the size of the camp, but everyone agrees that there need to be more parties at the table, working together, to decide how best to accomplish this task.
